    Yes.
    I drop them in the winter to help the deer make it thru a bad winter.

    I was going to mix oats in with corn this winter but, I was sure if it would hurt the deer by making them bloated or something.

    After the hunting season I have been feeding shelled corn with a 1/3 mix of oats for over 12 years no problems and the turkeys like the oats better than the corn,
